Souvenirs from Barcelona!

After getting souvenirs from Rome last year, I recently received souvenirs from Barcelona. My brother went to Barcelona for a week and he asked me what I wanted to get as souvenirs. In my mind, I was already making a long wishlist from Sephora (which sadly doesn't have stores in the Netherlands anymore as I wrote before in this post). But as he basically went there to relax and recharge, I couldn't really ask him to go to find the things I want with zero knowledge of beauty brands in a store crowded with women. So again, I just asked for a simple taste of Barcelona. I told him that I was satisfied with things that you can find in the supermarket or delicatessen stores, so don't expect a large haul with beauty products or fashionable items. ^_^

The first thing that drew my attention was this box filled with sweet treats. Initially, I thought it was a 0.5 kg box of chocolate bonbons as it was as heavy as a rock, but nothing shuffled inside when I shook it.

When I unwrapped it, I discovered this transparent box with four different blocks of nougats.

 I really enjoy nougats, so it is a lot of fun to be able to taste 4 different kinds.

I also received two Campos canned goods: belly fillets of the yellow fin tuna and mussels from the Galicia area, both conserved in olive oil. I just love seafood and these would probably taste great in a pasta dish or salad.

 I also got three Casa Taradellas glass jars of pâté in the flavors: olives, anchovis, and jamon ham. In the right, you can see a large jar of Aranca dried tomatoes. They would probably taste great on slices of French baguette.
